Skyports has entered a partnership with Jeju Air, a low-cost airline, to support the deployment of vertiports for air taxi operations in South Korea.
The agreement, formalised during a signing ceremony in Gimpo City, Korea, will bring together Skyports and Jeju Air to facilitate vertiport network development.

The partners said they will engage with key government, regulatory and industry stakeholders to identify requirements, opportunities and challenges associated with launching vertiport infrastructure and air taxi operations.
Skyports and Jeju Air will jointly define a network development strategy focussed on major metropolitan areas as well as Jeju Island.
Skyports and Jeju Air will also explore the commercial case for Korean air taxi services.
Yun Yuan Tay, head of Asia-Pacific region at Skyports, said: “Korea is an important market for the air mobility industry and a focus for Skyports Infrastructure.

“Since launching in the country in 2023, we’ve been working extensively with local partners to explore and develop opportunities for industry growth.
“Our partnership with Jeju Air brings new expertise and local connections. We’re excited to work together to take AAM to the next level in Korea develop concrete plans for implementing air taxi services.”
Jeju Air operates 42 aircraft and flies to 47 different locations throughout Korea.
Park Tae-ha, head of Jeju Air's UAM Business Task Force, said: “Through cooperation with Skyports, we will establish business models suitable for the Korean environment and solidify a standardised service system that can be immediately utilised in the commercialisation phase of UAM.”
